Mental health training for Jobcentre Plus staff

The DWP have approached the Royal College of Psychiatrists with a view to them providing front line staff with training on dealing with claimants with mental health issues. Daphne Hall, who writes for Rightsnet has an opportunity to go to the initial meeting looking at what that might entail. Obviously she has some idea of what the issues are for claimants with mental health problems but welcomes input from everyone about what they think are the key issues and will do her best to make sure they are all covered.

The meeting is on Wednesday the 1st of June 2016 so comments by end of play on Tuesday would be great – thanks in advance…
